i made a new illustrationpopupbook with kids in a kindergarden (4-6 years) of a poem by Ursula Wölfel: Wenn ich einen Garten hätte (If I had a garden) The children are very proud of their self-made book, they love it, they read and read the pages again and again, sometimes it is said that the children are no longer interested in books, stories, but here we can see That's not true and their pleasure keeps me on making books and drawings and poems and all that stuff. The book would be happy if it gets some readers and some feed back on my blog: http://klausvonmirbach.blogspot.de Thanks and best wishes

Sometimes I spend a lot of time making very intricate pages too. I really like the fact that you have added structure to this kind of work by attempting to finish a book a week. I think some structure and a goal would help me to pull my workings together.
. . . welcome to the pool Klaus, remember no running or diving. No peeing in the water and it is best to shower before doing your lengths. Once again, shower afterwards to remove the water additives (and everyone else's pee)
